Chargers CEO and chairwoman Dean Spanos also attended the game with his family. Spanos and the team announced on Thursday that they are relocating for next season from San Diego to Los Angeles.

It really is great to be here, Spanos told Fox Sports Prime Ticket during an in-game interview. Everybodys been so nice in greeting me, their own families, the Chargers. Were actually looking forward to this season.

Cumberland signed with the Chargers as a free agent before the 2016 -1 7 season, but tore his left achilles tendon in a preseason contest and never played a regular season game while the team was in San Diego.

The Clippers beat the Lakers 113 -9 7 on the night. The Clippers coach, Doc Rivers, said he guessed LA absorb two NFL teams in the Rams and Chargers.

You never want anybody to leave a city, but this is a big city, and I think we can handle it, he said on Saturday.

Theres enough room for two basketball teams, Rivers told. We have a lot of Clippers fans, and theres a lot of Lakers fans. There are two soccer teams[ Los Angeles FC will start playing in 2018 ]. There are two football teams. I guess there are two baseball teams, even though theyre not both in LA. Theres enough room. So itll be great. We have something to do on all weekends. Thats nice.
